Don and Dan, I am so sorry to hear of Jim's passing. I have many fond memories of growing up as neighbors -- spending summers at the lake, performing "shows" on the trampoline, sharing a paper route. It was a wonderful childhood with neighbors as a second family. I will always remember Jim's great laugh and fun spirit. I am keeping all of you in my prayers.

When I moved back here to SD after the Army in 2008. Jim was one of the first people I ran into from my HS days. I saw him several times over the years and it was always good to catch up. He was a quirky guy but had a great laugh and smile. Greatest memories were from band and our junior prom. Still have that group picture! I was sorry to hear he passed.

Jim was a dear friend to me. Though we had talked less and less over the years since we graduated from high school together, we still kept in contact and shared our lives and our love of music. I will miss his mischievous spirit and booming laugh. Jim had given me a book of his favorite short stories, poems and quotes years ago. It even contained a few that he wrote himself. I will cherish it always. I wanted to share one of his favorite poems that I thought he would find appropriate for this occasion. Nothing Gold Can Stay by Robert Frost Nature's first green is gold, Her hardest hue to hold. Her early leaf's a flower; But only so an hour. Then leaf subsides to leaf. So Eden sank to grief, So dawn goes down to day. Nothing gold can stay. I love you, Jimbo
